A food tour of the Cape, South Africa

Cape Town and its environs is arguably the best place in South Africa for a gourmand to visit - world-class wineries, fine dining restaurants and vibrant artisan markets abound. Here are some of the highlights.

Strand Road, De Zalze Golf Estate, Stellenbosch, 7600, South Africa
Located on the family-owned wine farm Kleine Zalze, Terroir is the very definition of laid-back luxury. Since the restaurant opened in 2004, diners haven’t stopped raving about chef Michael Broughton’s modern South African fare, from...

Happy Valley Rd, South Africa
Despite their love of all things biltong, South Africans rarely practice the art of charcuterie, which makes Neil Jewell’s efforts at Bread & Wine not only unique but utterly compelling. He and his wife, Tina, opened their restaurant at...

R45, South Africa
Fine dining doesn't have to mean stuffy formality. At least, it doesn't here. We'd been recommended The Kitchen by a friend who had worked with the head chef and the food was sensational – beef hung for 60 days and bone marrow cooked to an...

The highlight of Cape Town's hipster Woodstock district is its Saturday market, held in The Old Biscuit Mill. Every artisan baker, butcher, brewer, chocolatier and coffeemaker in the city has a stall there, and with more than 90 vendors all...
Save Place
Pass Road, Franschhoek, 7690, South Africa
There are several good reasons to make a special trip to this winery, not least that its sauvignon, pinot noir and shiraz regularly win major awards. The most obvious, however, hits you as soon as you walk through the restaurant and onto the...

273 Long St, Cape Town City Centre, Cape Town, 8001, South Africa
If you're looking for something other than fine dining in Cape Town, I can't recommend anything better than the burgers at Royale Eatery. The Cheddar Royale almost bested me – I thought I'd only get through half of it, but in the end it was so...
